  • Cavities can spread from one tooth to another.
  • Using stress to our advantage.

- The Real ID Act of 2005 was a post-9/11 attempt to normalize government-issued ID standards across the country. Beginning in 2020, Idahoans will need a Star Card to board flights and enter federal buildings. Idaho Matters talks about the new ID standards with the state's DMV.

- The days of card catalogues and mimeograph machines are over. Your public library probably looks more like an R&D lab these days. We look at the library programs preparing people for the 21st century with Boise Library director Kevin Booe.

- Dental cavities can spread from one person to another and on Tuesday's Idaho Matters, we talk about proper dental care with Delta Dental of Idaho.

- Idaho Matters talks with River Discovery and Expedition Inspiration about ways doctors are learning people can use stress to their advantage in cancer recovery.
